We ought to make one on wheels, like we keep seeing in period woodcuts.  
Uhhh, like this.  <http://www.godecookery.com/afeast/kitchens/kit010.html>
Transporting it would be a bear, but possible with a trailer.

You ought to see the community ovens they run at Estrella.  Next time I 
go, I want to hang out there.

I'm building a permanent brick bread oven in the new place actually.  
There's this half-finished brick BBQ that would convert pretty easily;  
just fill in the hollow inside, pour a slab then start building the 
dome.  Booyah!
